Getting There
Take the the Cypress Bowl Skiing exit from the Upper Levels Highway (Highway 1) in West Vancouver. Continue up the Cypress Park road and follow the signs to the Hollyburn cross-country ski area. Proceed to the far east end of the cross-country skiing parking lot where you will see a sign saying “Hiking trail to Hollyburn Lodge”. The hike to the cabin from the meeting spot is just over 1 kilometre and takes 30 to 45 minutes.

 

Cabin History
Construction of the cabin began in the summer of 1982 after eight years of planning and fundraising. All materials for the cabin were either airlifted by helicopter or carried in by hand. The official opening was held in September 1984. A pictorial history of the cabin is displayed in the foyer.

Standard of Care
The construction of the cabin required the investment of numerous volunteer hours. The maintenance is also almost entirely performed by volunteers. All users groups are expected to treat the cabin as they would treat their own property and to preserve the cabin for the future. A refundable security deposit is collected with your rental fee and will be returned if the cabin is left in satisfactory condition.
